PENDUGAAN SIMPANAN BIOMASSA DAN KARBON JENIS AMPUPU (Eucalyptus urophylla) PADA KAWASAN HUTAN TAMAN WISATA ALAM RUTENG DI RESORT KONSERVASI WILAYAH I GOLO LUSANG, KECAMATAN LANGKE REMBONG, KABUPATEN MANGGARAI, PROVINSI NUSA TENGGARA TIMUR
Forests can absorb CO2 in the atmosphere through photosynthesis. CO2 that accumulates in the atmosphere will cause the effects of Green House Gases that can cause global warming. Forests are a major carbon storage in global ecosystems so their role in the global carbon cycle is very important, both in the form of carbon storage or carbon flux. This study aims to estimate the biomass deposits and carbon of the Ampupu (Eucalyptus urophylla) forest in the Ruteng Nature Tourism Park, Resort I Golo Lusang. This study uses a systematic method by census. The amount of biomass and carbon reserves of each species of Ampupu (Eucalyptus urophylla) is calculated by the Allometric equality. The total biomass content in the study location was 9.82 Tons/Ha, the tree phase was 7.60 tons / ha, the pole phase was 1.86 Tons/Ha, the sapling phase was 0.36 Tons/Ha and seedlings were 0. Total carbon content in the study location of 3,03 Tons/Ha, the tree phase was 2.34 Tons/Ha, the pole phase was 0.58 Tons/Ha, the sapling phase was 0.11 Tons/Ha and the seedling phase was 0.
